See it if you enjoy shakespeare & like it presented in a thoughtful, straightforward manner; also if you are keen on seeing ruth negga's performance.
Don't see it if you don't want to see a woman playing hamlet, are disturbed by a lot of haze & smoke, are offended by nudity, & hate sitting 3-1/2 hours.
See it if You want to see a master performance by Ruth Negga

See it if you want to see an Ethiopian-Irish actress bring such humanity & humor to the title role (as a man) that she outshines Olivier and Branagh.
